Monument splits the districts. North side of Monument had Glover, South side had someone else. Because of traffic concerns and site lines, both Supervisors were involved. I have never seen anything like Henrico government disregard citizen wishes over and over as I had with the Hospital expansions. Everytime the hospital grew, the County would ensure the residents (in writting) that they would not cross Maple Ave. or they would not ever build another campus building. And then the County would reneg. I swear, 95% of the residents (many elderly that lived there for most of there lives), would attend the planning meetings at the hospital and dissent and then attend the meetings at the government center and object. The reasons were numerous -traffic, accidents, school bus routes, green space, property values (as the hospital would buy up neighboring houses, then demolish them) ... But most of all, the residents would point to the covenant they had writted by the county, ensuring there would be no growth past maple Ave or on Monument. Somehow it didn't matter. Supervisors would always vote 4-1 against 95% of the residents.Now that I am thinking about it the Brooklyn District does have Willow Lawn. I get confused about how they are configured.
The only hold out was a African-American supervisor from the east end. He would always dissent and say this wasn't his district, but as an elected official his job is to represent the people and that it is clear the people do not want the project.
Anyway, I have owned commercial and residential property in Henrico, I have been involved as an investor with Bryan Kornblau/ Eagle Construction attempt to salvage West Broad Village around 2007 and have performed contract work for Henrico County Water and Watsewater treatment plants (building out the Labs) as well as a few high schools in Henrico. Plans frequently (in fact almost always) change. Designs get reduced or expanded or in some cases scrapped all together. Henrico is substantially better than most localities at getting things done close to the timeline, but man, I will bet anyone that the plans in place today are not going to be the plans the architect signs off when the job is complete and its time to release the final funds to the builder.
